When you need it most, M.D. Ellis is here.
When you need A/C or heating repair, you need it to be done the right away, the right way. You can’t be waiting around for your air conditioner to be repaired while your family is sitting in a sauna. You also can’t afford to pay for an HVAC appointment and then not have your system work a week later.
When we perform an HVAC repair service, we guarantee our San Antonio neighbors that their system is going to work the next time they it on. We won’t keep you waiting. With flat-rate billing, we don’t take extra time on each job. We provide fast professional and affordable service 24/7.
Regular maintenance of your air conditioning system is a prerequisite for its good performance and energy efficiency. Without the necessary maintenance of your unit’s coils, filters, and fins, you are likely to experience a steady and significant decline in the performance of your HVAC system.
At M.D. Ellis Refrigeration we deliver reliable air conditioning repair and maintenance services to residents of San Antonio and the surrounding areas. Our technicians are qualified to service and maintain HVAC systems of all kinds and use high-performance equipment to ensure the optimal efficiency of your unit all year round.
There’s nothing like the peace of mind that comes with a new HVAC system. The reliability of modern air conditioners and furnaces is greater than older systems and they have not withstood the wear and tear of years of use. Expect to have your new system for 10+ years of efficient and effective use when you keep it properly maintained.
Regularly maintaining your system keeps it operating at its best. Allowing dust and debris to gum up your system forces it to work harder to achieve the same degree of cooling. With the cost of energy these days, system efficiency is an important factor for all SA homeowners.
When you invest in routine maintenance, you are protecting your investment in your HVAC system. When your system is regularly cleaned and inspected, you avoid the small and large setbacks that can shorten your unit’s lifespan.
If your faulty air conditioner is more than 10 years old, ask a trusted HVAC professional for two quotes: one for repair and one for replacement. If the AC repair estimate is less than 25% of the cost of a new system, it makes the most sense to repair it. Over 25%, start looking at a replacement.
Don’t forget to include lucrative extras in your calculation. For example, is your AC under warranty? If so, that may reduce or eliminate the repair cost. Another item to consider is incentives and rebates. During the slower season of spring and fall, you can find the deepest discounts on a new unit. Be sure to factor in those savings!
At most, you should expect to repair your AC or heater once a year. If you have to call an HVAC technician twice, three times, or more over the course of 12 months, there is an underlying issue.
However, that issue isn’t necessarily that your HVAC needs replacement. It could be that a previous repair was unsuccessful–either poor workmanship or a failed component. Another potential problem could be that your home is suffering from leaky doors or windows, and your HVAC is overworking to compensate. –maybe your AC or heater really is on its last legs and needs replacement.
If you’ve had two or more repairs in the last 12 months, you should consult with one of our technicians. Our team will work with you to determine the underlying problem and guide you in the next steps.
